It’s the Little Things: Tiny Pet and Mount Pics from Habitica’s April Fool’s Celebration

Habiticans enjoyed yet another April 1st marked by silly pixel antics this year! This time, the April Fool assured us he’d “keep it small.” Little did we know his nefarious prank would indeed be shrinking some of our favorite things in Habitica: our pets and mounts!

As part of a special Challenge to mark the occasion, many Habiticans shared their  avatars with their newly miniaturized friends on social media! Here are just a few of the many awesome pics you all posted as part of the Challenge!

First, here are the entries from our Challenge Winners!

Al Lith
Al Lith is ready for battle with their itty bitty (but very shady!) Cactus and Ferret!
Frar of the Lonely Mountain
Frar of the Lonely Mountain‘s Hippogriff is suddenly quite overwhelmed by that sack of loot.
Koliz
Here’s Koliz and the Order of the Teensy Phoenix
Garwinna
Luckily for mighty Garwinna, the Skeleton Cactus’s intimidation factor is hardly diminished by its small size.
Meakuel
Meakuel‘s Penguin is SO CUTE but maybe should be a little worried about being carried off by butterflies.

 

A few of Habitica’s mods and staff may have had just a bit too much fun:

notabug
Beffymaroo can’t resist a classic art reference.
shanaqui
“Habitica has never illustrated my life quite so well before!,” exclaims shanaqui.

 

And here are some more of our favorite entries! There were so many great ones, it was hard to choose just a few to feature here.

Epic
“Just a regular fancyman with his tiny friends,” says Epic.
claudia, Evil Overmom
claudia, Evil Overmom, has news for the Fool: “The April Fool is supposed to make trouble, but instead he granted my wish for a slug pet too tiny to threaten my tulip-y gorgeousness! The joke’s on you, April Fool!”
skasha
skasha has an urgent message! “My dragons were annoyed about it right up until they realized they could dive into my rainbow sherbet head first. Now everything is sticky. … Send help.”
Nyctereutes
What are these, pets for ants?! Nyctereutes exclaims.
kkgmt
kkgmt notes, “Though she be little, she is fierce!”

 

Citrusella favored us with three unique looks, and one interesting experiment with a css style!

 

Folks in the Costume Carnival Guild also had a lot of fun with the mini-pets and mounts:

Drexxis
Drexxis makes it springy (but with a touch of spookiness) in the Skeleton Skin.
tangerinequartzfox
TangerineQuartzFox is: THE FROZEN GUARDIAN OF THE MICROGRIFFS!
Poirot
Poirot‘s frog is determined to be the best mount it can be, despite its small stature.

 

 

Lalaitha gave us two looks: Tiny Bees! And Crocheted Hippo Plushie Time!

We had so much fun bringing you more of the April Fool’s goofy antics this year! We’re glad you had as much fun as we did. Stay tuned to see what that delightful joker is up to next April 1!
